INTRODUCTION 

THEODOR STORM 

,8Ber ben t)td5tcr rtifl serftc^en 
SKu6 in Dic^terS ?anbe getjcn." 

This word of Goethe's can be applied to few authors 
more fittingly than to Storm, for few authors have 
been so completely rooted in their native soil. Born 
in Schleswig, the most northern of German provinces, 
he has found in the legends and traditions which 
abound in this borderland of Scandinavian and Ger- 
man civilizations his materials and motives; its simple, 
rugged folk have been his actors; the iitful sea, the 
barren heath, the fertile lowlands, the gloomy moor 
and forest which surrounded his native town have 
given his tales their setting and local coloring. 

Storm was born September 14, 181 7, in Husum, a 
small seaport in the Duchy of Schleswig, then a prov- 
ince of Denmark. Of good family, — his father a 
respected and busy lawyer, his mother of the patrician 
class, — he grew up amidst a large circle of relatives 
and in close association with the townspeople. 

Storm's school and university life show little out of 
the ordinary. After completing the course in the old 
Latin School of his native town he was sent to the ex- 



^^ INTRODUCTION 

cellent Gymnasium of Lubeck, where he entered the 
highest class — Prima. At Easter, 1837, he matricu- 
lated as a student of law at the neighboring Univer- 
sity of Kiel, — the chief seaport of Schleswig-Holstein 
and accordingly also in Danish territory. A year later 
this university was exchanged for that of Berlin, 
where he spent three semesters, returning in the 
autumn of 1839 to Kiel, to complete his preparation 
for the state examination requisite for admission to 
the bar. 

Though not an indifferent student. Storm acquired 
much outside of the class room. He was little attracted 
by the rough and wild side of student life, — the 
heritage of a yet wilder age, — but he found ample 
opportunity for increasing his knowledge of human 
nature. Much of his time was spent in the open, and 
there began that close acquaintance with plant and 
animal life which gives a peculiarly realistic coloring 
to his writings. 

From the time of his admission to the bar (1842), 
Storm's career is closely associated with the fate of 
his native state. Schleswig-Holstein, whose inhabit- 
ants were in large part German, had long chafed under 
Danish rule. The struggle for independence, begun 
in the revolution of 1848, ended disastrously in 1852. 
With the tightening of the Danish bonds. Storm's 
license to continue the practise of his profession was 
made dependent upon his renunciation of his anti- 
Danish sympathies. He was therefore forced into 
exile and sought service in the Prussian courts. 



INTRODUCTION Vll 

His first assignment was as Associate Judge of the 
Military Court in the garrison town of Potsdam 
(November, 1853), and while here he made many con- 
genial friends in the neighboring Berlin, among them 
Eichendorflf, Fontane, and Heyse. But, much as 
Storm valued these friendships and those made at 
Heiligenstadt in the Harz Mountain region, whither 
he was transferred three years later, his affections 
remained unalterably fixed upon his home in the 
north. 

At the conquest of Schleswig-Holstein by the allied 
German armies (1864), Storm returned to Husum 
and was installed as Governor {Landvogt) under the 
provisional government. Upon the incorporation of 
this province into Prussia he was again appointed to 
the bench. Retired from active service at his own 
request in 1880, he withdrew to the little estate which 
he had purchased near the country village of Hade- 
marschen. Here he died July 4, 1888. 

Our interest lies, however, in what Storm did during 
the odd moments gained from this busy and arduous 
public career. 

In addition to a considerable body of lyric poetry, 
which has given him rank among the best, he has left 
us some fifty short stories (Novellen). Chiefly upon 
these rests his literary reputation, and competent 
critics class beside him in this field only Keller and 
Heyse. 

Among the most characteristic and best known of 
Storm's Novellen are the following: —

Many and varied are the phases of human life which 
Storm portrays, but he excels especially in the charm- 
ing realism with which he treats the everyday life of 
the rugged old-fashioned people of his home. His 
sympathetic touch has given to their simple doings a 
universal interest. 

Quite as worthy of note is his skill in the treatment 
of inanimate nature. His simple folk live close to 
nature and are dependent on its moods. So his back- 
grounds of moor, forest, and sea, the glow of the sunset 
sky, the sailing clouds at noonday, — painted with the 
skill which hides painstaking care, — seem essential 
parts of the story rather than mere accessory details. 

AsinAuf der Universitdl, a sad tone pervades many 
of Storm's Novellen. He is sometimes called the poet 
of resignation. His is, however, not the resignation of 
despondency but rather of a hopeful belief in the ul- 



INTRODUCTION IX 

timate outcome. The reader finds therefore in his 
works that purification and elevation of feeling com- 
mended by Aristotle and Lessing as characteristic of 
ancient tragedy. 

Storm expresses his own conception of the scope 
and purpose of the short story as follows: — 

"The Novelle of the present day is the sister of the 
drama and the severest form of poetic diction. Like 
the drama, it treats of the deepest problems of human 
life and, like it, requires for its perfection a conflict as 
the organic center of the whole. It therefore requires 
the most compact form and the exclusion of all non- 
essentials. It imposes the highest requirements of 
art rather than submits to them." 

Auf der Universitai is a typical embodiment of this 
conception of the Novelle. The plot is simple, the 
action compact. Without unnecessary detail it moves 
along with the inevitableness of life itself. The style 
of the narrative is lucid and idiomatic, the conversation 
natural. It has the additional charm, — characteristic 
of several of Storm's tales, — of being told by a par- 
ticipant in the action, and forms no exception among 
his stories, in resting firmly upon his own experiences. 
The scenes and episodes of university life are from his 
own student days in Kiel where one may still trace 
many of the landmarks mentioned. 

Recognizing the qualities of Auf der Universitdt, the 
poet and novelist Paul Heyse selected it for the Novel- 
lenschatz (Vol. IX, 1879), but was tmable to obtain it 
from the publisher.

NOTES 



NOTES 

Heavy figures indicate pages ; light figures, lines. 

3. — 7. Scfunboncr. The course of study in the German 
Secondary Schools (®»)tnnofiutn, Oberrcalfc^ule, etc.) covers 
nine years, in classes as follows: Sexta, Quinta, Quarta, each 
of one year; Tertia, Sekunda, Prima, each of two years. The 
course is completed at about the nineteenth year. 

II. ju befc^affen. Note the passive force of the active in- 
finitive with fetn. Cf. 18. 22, 27. 9, etc. 

13. ^nc frii^ere, . . . jugejogene ^dc^in. Long or involved 
attributive phrases are to be translated — (i) by an adjec- 
tive clause: a former cook of his parents, who was, etc.; or 
(2) by an appositional construction: a former cook of his 
parents, still always called in, etc. Such phrases are frequent 
in the text. Cf. 22. 6, 7 f., 21. 19 f., 27. 27 f., 34. 24 f., 63. 4 f., 
56. 16, etc. 

14. bet JJfflu SBurflcrmciftcrtn, Note the use of the titles $err 
and i^vavi before designations of rank and the frequent reten- 
tion of the definite article, especially in the oblique cases. 
The feminine suffix — in is not now generally added to the 
title of the husband. 

4. — 18. ®nttbifle %xavi and ©nabigeS grttulein are forms of 
address generally used toward ladies of some social station. 
When so used flnttbtfl is usually not to be translated, jtldne 
(^rdulein unb gndbige t^riiufein might be rendered: little misses 

and young ladies. 

6. — I. tooiil . . ., been wont to. 
8. ouf ben Kopf flcfoHcn. Cf. vocab. jtopf. 
14. o^ne baff . . . crjtelt toaxt. The subjunctive (unreal po- 
97 



9S NOTES 

tential) after o^ne bofe (nearly = obflleic^ nicftt) represents the 
statement of an unattained result as based upon surmise or 
opinion rather than as a fact. Cf. 34. 8, 37. 25. 

6. — 27. t>a \ttiitn ia. .., why there are (or stand), tic. ^ah 
used in stating something as self-evident or readily conceded, 
= of course, indeed, you know, don't you see, you see, why. Cf . 
90. 14, and often. 

7. — 2. Wber ©ottfg. Cf. vocab. lelbtr. Except in this ex- 
pression the genitive is rare in exclamations. 

3. (Sx mu^te ^ttntn boc^. !Do(^, like {a and )Dof)I, adds em- 
phasis to a statement, but differs from them in always having 
adversative force: You must know {in spile of your question). 
Cf. 59. 26. 

8. fiir We fiore. In colloquial speech the article occurs fre- 
quently in referring to persons familiarly or well known. 

35. inbem fte ftc^ . . . cttotfixtt. Clauses of time, manner, 
and cause are often best rendered in English by a participial 
construction, — while warding of, etc. 

28. @0 . . . ge^C^t, Now you have gone and set the girl to coax- 
ing me. 9lun einmal indicates that the matter is now settled 
and cannot be changed. 

8. — 22. Note the frequent examples of accusative abso- 
lute. Cf. 26. 13 f., 31. 1, 35. 23, 39. 4, 42. 12, 62. 23 f., etc. 

9. — 21. SRamfeO. Note the disparaging force in the use 
of 2J?amftQ rather than ^rttulein. 

22. Wirb Wo^l . . . fcln. Note the use of the future (espe- 
cially with X(itiiii[ = probably, I presume) to express present 
probability, that of the future perfect to express past prob- 
ability. Cf. 51. 21. 

24. BUT in requests is more persuasive than tinmal (cf. 
9. 11), and less firm and insistent than boc^ (cf. 15. 18);* 
please, pray, just, etc. Cf. 31. 9. 



NOTES 99 

10. — 20. nltftt gcften moKte. With a non-personal subject 
kDoIIen may, as here, serve to indicate the perverseness or per- 
sistence of circumstances: would not go; seemed bound not to go. 

11. — 18. (ieft . . . me^r, / cotild no longer keep quiet. 

22. !tu(4junge, a flap of cloth so arranged as to make the

6. griebrtc^ Sticker (1789-1860), from 1817 Director of 
Music at the University of Tubingen; composer and compiler 
of several popular books of choral music. 

15. Louis seize. Louis XVI of France was born at Ver- 
sailles, August 23, 1734, married Marie Antoinette of Aus- 
tria, 1770, succeeded his grandfather Louis XV, 1774, with 
the prospect of a successful and popular reign. In 1778 he ac- 
knowledged the independence of the United States and sent 
an army and fleet to their aid. Disordered finances, extrava- 
gances of the court and the rejection of proposals for reform 
led to a series of events which culminated in the proclamation 
of a republic, 1792, and the execution of the king, January 21, 
1793- — Tuileries, the royal palace in Paris, almost entirely 
destroyed by the Commune in 1871. 

15. — 18. <Bo toft bO(^ ft^en, . . . !J)oc^ adds urgency to re- 
quests, implying at the same time reluctance in the person 
addressed: Do let it be. Come, let it stay there. Cf. 28. 7, 
30. 12, 69. 24, etc. 

rg. tnein, colloquial for mir; a confusion of the two construc- 
tions: bad ^u(^ i[t mein, and t^ gei)5rt mir.

often replace the pronoun of address (©ie). JJBoHen ^err ^ro- 
feffor (or ©nflblflc grau) bie ®Ute ^ben, etc. The use of the title 
with a plural verb in speaking of a person, as above, is char- 
acteristic of the uneducated. 

23. barum audi, {for that reason too = ) that explains also, etc. 

22. — 4. Xiet fiorc fcl . . . Note the use of the article to

adjective remains uninflected: „iunfl unb alt, bt>ci& unb niebrifl,

23. — 4. moi^te . . . crft^einett S^dgen, denoting as it does

jecture, or estimate: may have seemed, possibly seemed. Cf. 
36. 26, 36. 27, 46. 12, 64. 5, 66. 8, etc.
